Aileen will arrange a time to meet with you and talk in depth about what your artwork will be. If you would like a sculptural portrait of a family member then Aileen will spend a minimum of ten hours with them, drawing and modelling while they are going about their day. Aileen does not work from photographs unless you require this (for instance a surprise gift or a memorial). She believes that her time spent with the subject gives her insights into their personality which a photograph does not convey.
The completed miniature with its maker’s mark will be boxed and presented along with a handwritten description of its provenance. Any drawings made will be bound into a journal to accompany the work.
